Thanks for your question.
Are you trying to get off all the medications?
Yes. I am not your average drug user and was unaware that the high level of meds were effecting my brain. Last month I was driving my son and just made it into the house before I passed put. But I don't know what to expect during my hospital stay. I am highly motivatedto get off of this shit.
Why were these medications prescribed in the first place?
I was told I had an anxiety disorder and my psychiatrist prescribed these meds 5 years ago. I really trusted him and was unaware of what was happeing. I have also have had several auras. I thought they were just panicd attacks. Since the eeg we did a little on line research and discovered that this doctor regularly over prescribes meds.
That is very unfortunate.
Indeed these medications are not required for anxiety disorder.
Too many medications which can precipitate seizure and mental fogginess.
Since you have been on these medications for several years, it will take some time to wean off them.
I feel horrible leaving my kids. What can I expect during my hospital stay.
Initially you may have to spend about 2 weeks in the hospital to make sure you are not having withdrawal seizures.
Your medications will be tapered slowly.
Xanax takes longer time than othes.
Xanax can be tapered outpatient basis after initial hospital stay.
I am a good wife and mom. I would have never allowed this had I known.
This is not your fault .
Please do not blame yourself.
I have no doubt you are excellent person.
But, this will take some time as these medications require careful tapering to avoid withdrawal symptoms.
I just feel so responsible because I try to be a good mom and wife. Last summer my son was in a drowning experience and survived he was 24 days in a coma. And know I have this to add to my family. They don't deserve this. You can bet I will never allow this to happen again.
These events happen and sometimes you will have no control over them.
Please tell me everything will be okay. I feel terrible to add this to an already terrible year.
But good thing is you are in right direction.
you are going to an excellent medical center.
And you will be off these medications in next few weeks.
That will be the greatest gift for your family once you are off the meds and everything will be fine.
Wish you the best,
Thanks for listening.
You helped get me through one of my sad spells.
And you should feel good that you are in right direction
You will see the better days ahead
